sandy hook so we had 26 and 20 of them children are all dead so what difference does it make what kind of gun the shooter used or whether he was crazy. what difference does it make? it makes a lot of difference. we want to prevent it from happening again and hold those responsible who are indeed accountable for the crime f. a drunk driver kills a child in a car accident, we don't say what difference does it make? we want to know why did he get drunk and drive. it makes all of the difference in the world . americans still don't know the answers and we have a right to demand what they are. kentucky senator ram paul said he would have relieved her of her post if he was president and he was equally as tough on the man who was to succeed her. things got heated when senator paul asked kerry about the recent controversial aid package to egypt. >> you heard president morsi's comments about zionist and israelis being blood suckers and descendants was apes and pigs. do you think it is wise to send them f-16. >> i think those comments are reprehensible and degrading and unacceptable by anybody's

the shooting at sandy hook elementary and on the same day the vice president weighed in on a google chat. >> i don't view it as gun control, i view it as gun safety. >> reporter: those backing the bill say they're specifically protecting 220 named guns hunters and sportsman can use. nearly 14 times the number they would ban. the nra is already pushing back, saying senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades. we're confident congress will reject her approach. but in a sign of where the nation stands, a new abc news "washington post" joint poll shows that 53% of americans support the kinds of gun reforms that president obama has proposed so far. mark greenblatt, abc news, new york. >> thank you, mark. of course, the president signed several executive orders. that was the first salvo in all of this. now the tougher battle is capitol hill. even senator feinstein said the chances of this getting passed are unlikely but it's a battle worth having. we'll see what happens once it hits capitol hill. >> i think most americans, especially after newtown, they do sup

situation, we had be appalled. it'd be like saying after sandy hook, so we have 26 people, 20 of them children who are dead, they're all dead now, so what difference does it make, what kind of gun that the shooter used or whether he was crazy? what difference does it make? obviously, it makes a lot of difference, not only because we want to prevent it from ever happening again, but we want to hold those responsible, who are indeed accountable for the crime. if a drunk driver kills a child in a car accident, we don't just say, well, what difference does it make? no, we want to know why did he get drunk and drive. it makes all the difference in the world. and americans still don't know the answers. and we have a right to demand what they are. kentucky senator rand paul told clinton he would have relieved her of her post if he were president during those hearings. he was equally as tough on the man nominated to succeed her as secretary of state, massachusetts senator john kerry during his confirmation hearing the next day. things got a little heated when senator paul asked senator kerry

, that's find. we have hurricane sandy to worry about. i'm not in favor of anything. but given that, i think the media should have been fair. you can't get me on that one. jim? [laughter] jon: all right. jim? >> well, i would just say this, that, for example, the way they treated mrs. obama's clothing and the clothing of the girls and stuff, they then talked about what a great deal this is, and this is abc again last night about how wonderful it is these fashion deciphers will get rich -- designers will get rich. it was exactly the kind of thing they wouldn't have done for laura bush, barbara bush or nancy reagan -- >> whoa, whoa, nancy reagan they would have done it. >> everything she does is wonderful, and it's incredibly expensive, all the better because that's just good for jobs and the economy and some fashion designer who's lifted from obscurity. that is biased, and even you, ellen, you admit it. >> well -- jon: some differences in the ways the two parties' candidates or presidents get covered. we're going to have to leave it there. jim, ellen, thank you both. >> thank you. arthe

-- i ran into chris perry and sandy steer, which it is almost supreme court time. >> yeah. i'm really curious to know exactly what questions the supreme court will take up, but obama's speech was right in front of the supreme court justices. >> stephanie: yeah. >> so delivering this kind of message right in front of the supreme court, right in front of republican opposition. it's hard to crawl back from that. >> we know what clarence thomas will say he will point at scalia and say whatever he said. >> stephanie: he looked cute in that hat. but he has such a nice head of hair. >> it was weird. >> stephanie: being here matt we were saying when you walk by the supreme court you go wow. >> yeah. >> stephanie: anyway here is the president. >> obama: our journey is complete, until our wives mothers and daughters can earn a living equal to their male partners. our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated equal under the law. if we are truly created equal then surely the love we commit to one another is equal as well. no citizen shou
on that. we had the big sandy relief bill, $60 billion of mostly pork barrel spending, republicans blinked on that. now we have the debt kraoerblgs it looks like the president will get his way on that at least for now. i've been in washington for a longtime, 25 years covering the debt deals and the budget deals. what is frustrating about this is that the only time i can recall over the last 25 years congress has had to get serious about cutting spending and reducing the deficit is when they are at the point of this debt ceiling, and the president says we don't want to use that any more as a kind of point of emphasis, and i think that is a mistake, because what it means is we're never going to get serious about the debt unless we use the debt ceiling as that point where we make a deal to reduce the spending. martha: very distressing. matt, steve, thank you very much, guys. we'll see where this goes. we'll see you soon. >> thanks. >> thank you, martha. bill: 13 minutes before the hour and just about everyone is watching their taxes go higher. why is a famous protkpwoefrl and a pretty good on

. >> certainly it was a tragedy, benghazi was a tragedy but when you put her up there with 9/11 and sandy hook, and aurora and dozens of others that is just hyperbole, and that's what he is known for. i like rand but he just gets a little whacky sometimes. >> stephanie: yeah a little whack-a doodle. john mccain said that chris stevens spoke to him directly about needing more security. did he do something? pass on the information? or keep it to himself? did he bring the information to the state department? that was an odd moment. right? excuse me you are the head of the armed services committee. >> of course. and she raised that point in a very productive way. so clearly this was not anything that was on any member's radar screen to appoint d which they actually took action in any way. >> stephanie: right. >> so the whole scenario is just an embarrassment, i think. and fortunately i think hilary embarrassed them even more yesterday. >> stephanie: yeah absolutely. i was hoping she would open with i got your freakin' benghazi flu right here. but she is classier than i am. >> yeah. th

[♪ magic wand ♪] >> it gets really, really bleak as soon as you leave the east coast. >> stephanie: i apologize. how about the president's speech. it made all of the right people mad, right? >> i was very cold when i heard it, so i think it was fantastic. i'm not quite sure. but the world "stonewall" was really really powerful. >> stephanie: yeah. >> and he has been reputed to be this communist socialist kenyan it is about time he gave a speech that was somewhat liberal. >> stephanie: yeah. despite the fact that he is the first american president who has ever said the word gay in his inaugural address. >> yeah. those were two big things. and -- and as much as we -- you know, give the president hell -- which we should. we should keep him accountable for everything he has done. he has not closed guantanamo hello. but the
